Hot on the heels of their excellent new album Koma West on WeJazz records Koma Saxo feat. Sofia Jernberg come to Berlin for a special record release concert at House of Music in Friedrichshain this March.
Petter Eldh’s explosive ensemble Koma Saxo continues their adventures with a new album “Koma West”, out on We Jazz Records, 18 March 2022. The album sees Koma Saxo expand on their previous sound with the addition of vocalist Sofia Jernberg and a strong cast of featured artists, including cellist Lucy Railton, violinist Maria Reich, pianist Kit Downes and accordionist Kiki Eldh (Petter’s mom!). The hard-hitting key quintet remains, including Eldh on bass and assorted instruments, Christian Lillinger on drums, plus saxophonists Otis Sandsjö (of Y-OTIS), Jonas Kullhammar and Mikko Innanen bringing the SAXO to the KOMA operation.
Sofia Jernberg is a Swedish experimental singer, composer, improviser and performer. She was born in Ethiopia in 1983 and grew up there, in Vietnam and in Sweden. She has been living in Oslo, Norway since 2011. One of her central concerns as a singer is to explore and sound out the “instrumental” possibilities of the voice.
